The HDX6801+ series of de-embedders for the 6800+™ core processing platform accepts and auto-senses HD/SD-SDI serial video input with embedded audio and de-embeds it to provide up to four balanced or unbalanced AES/EBU outputs.
Part of the 6800+ platform, these de-embedder modules also provide four SDI reclocked outputs, serving as a mini distribution amplifier.
The HDX6801+ modules can be controlled manually via card-edge controls, or controlled and monitored via the CCS Navigator™ software application, HTTP web browser, NUCLEUS™ hardware control panels or third-party SNMP-based control applications. The modules are Q-SEE™-compliant, allowing for direct thumbnail monitoring when installed in an Ethernet-equipped 6800+ frame.
Four AES outputs
Four reclocked HD or SD-SDI outputs function as a mini distribution amplifier
Full flexibility in selecting any channel(s) of audio de-embedded from any group to be supplied to the AES outputs, including audio tones
- 24-bit AES audio de-embedding
- Audio processing amplification with controls for delay, gain, invert, mute, channel multiplexing and dithering
- 16-, 20- or 24-bit audio processing (selectable word length in channel pairs)
- De-embeds HD or DD audio
- Programmable audio delays from 0 to 1320 ms
- Non-PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) user setting enables passing of compressed audio such as Dolby® E (by channel pair)
- Four internal audio test tones: 750 Hz, 1.5 kHz, 3 kHz, 6 kHz (all at –20 dBFS)
- Upon de-embedding error detection, user setup to either mute or repeat last good AES sample
- Card-edge LEDs to indicate audio and video signal presence and module setup/status
- One HD or SD-SDI input with auto-detection of any SMPTE 292M/SMPTE 259M-C video standard
- Input status feedback indicating video standard and audio group presence
- DARS AES reference input ensures AES11 compliance on the AES outputs and aids in preventing pops/clicks in downstream switching equipment
- One each balanced and unbalanced DARS input on balanced modules
- One unbalanced DARS input on unbalanced modules
